Zanxeo is the eponymous hero of a new adventure series – well, it is according to my son – he has the ideas for issue one: the undiscovered island.
A story he started writing for the school book – that they replaced with a list of things he did during half term – if you’ve ever seen a 7 year old jump up and down in raging disappointment – then you’ll know what we had to deal with.
The undiscovered island was his idea for a new Tintin – but it’s time for a new hero.
We’ve worked together to create Zanxeo (zan – zee – oh), his pet mini mammoth – Little M (rescued from the crazy scientist’s lair on the undiscovered island – do keep up). He works for ?Stark (question st.ARK) – an environmental charity that helps in areas of devastation. This is a front – but he takes it seriously when he is needed.
His workshop and living abode was/is devastated in Revolution Messiah (issue 2) but he finds an abandoned windmill (in the wastelands of The Independent Republic of Iceni) where his friends build him a new place to live – knocked up in straw bales, getting the old windmill sails working – replacing them with wrap around solar panels – so he can always create electricity with wind or sun.
This is needed when (secretly) you monitor the atrocities of world governments.
